Almost There....


My dear readers, I am so excited - we are about to hit a MAJOR milestone on the Ephemeraology Facebook page!  (See that button directly to your right?  If you haven't yet, just press "like"!)

Now, 500 fans (or "likes", or whatever you'd like to call them) may not be a lot compared to some of my favorite pages, but to me it represents a huge accomplishment!  I am so thrilled that there are others out there like me who just love vintage paper and sundries (I love that word, "sundries"!).

When I started out writing Ephemeraology, I thought it would be a once-a-week post.  And for a while, it was.  But in December of 2010 I thought I'd ramp things up a bit and try to write every weekday.  In February of 2011, I had an idea to call on my favorite online shops and see if they'd like to "advertise" with me. (I put "advertise" in quotes because I don't charge them anything; these are shops with whom I personally patronize and in whom I put my trust.)  In most cases I've been shopping with them for years and they actually knew who I was when I approached them with the idea of doing giveaways.  In one case (Retro Cafe Art Gallery), I've actually met Kristin in person!

I love my advertisers and I know you do too!  So here's what we're going to do:

When the Facebook page hits that big 5-0-0, we're going to have a BLOWOUT giveaway.  I'm talkin' HUGE.  Here's what one lucky fan will win:

See what I mean by BLOWOUT?!?  This is a prize pack worth well over $100!  I am so grateful to these wonderful folks for getting in on the fun.  So tell your friends and get 'em to "like" our page - the more, the merrier!

Once we hit the 500 mark I'll write again with contest rules and all of that fun stuff.  Until then - keep your eyes on the prize and your feet buried in ephemera.  :D

Thank you again to all of you who read my blog - I couldn't have made it this far without you!   

P.S.  See that Pinterest button on the right?  You can follow me there now, too!  :D

  2. Wonderful! I finally got to play with citra solve this past weekend. I can't buy it locally- living in the wilds of Iowa- and every time I go into a "big" city I forget to put it on my list. Anyway- I bought my mom's house 10 years ago and the other day was looking for something under the sink and there was a bottle of Citra Solv! It was a little sediment y in the bottom but it still worked. And what fun I had! Even though I can't stand the smell of oranges (goes back to my pregnant days)- I am going to keep having fun with citra solv!

    1. YAY Laura! I absolutely LOVE my Citra Solv pages. One of my most favorite springtime traditions is opening the windows on a sunny day and spending the afternoon creating new CS/Nat Geo pages for my artwork. I really like the orange smell but if you don't, there's always the lavender-scented CS instead! :D
